WASHINGTON, Feb. 4 (Xinhua) -- On the heels of an impressive win in Florida, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney Saturday apparently was cruising to another decisive win in Nevada, with major networks and news media projecting him winner of the state's Republican caucuses.

After all polls closed in the Western state, major U.S. television networks including CNN, Fox and MSNBC projected the former Massachusetts governor winner in the state, gaining a commanding lead with over 40 percent of projected support.

In his victory speech to supporters, Romney used his front runner status to cement a nominee-in-waiting image, hammering President Barack Obama for leading the country in the wrong direction, touting himself as the right man to lead the country back to greatness.

"This is not the first time you've given me your vote of confidence, and this time I'm going to take it to the White House," said Romney.
